      I had a surprisingly wonderful experience today ... for an MRI. Though I arrived 15 minutes early for my MRI appointment, I was met at the door by an intake person who took my temperature and guided me to the reception desk. While I was filling out the paper work, I noticed that a person walked in while the intake person was busy with another patient. She politely asked the newcomer to wait outside. Everyone in the office wore masks and required patients to wear masks. All the staff was very pleasant and very professional. I was seen immediately which surprised me as the reviews of other facilities in Asheville had complaints about long wait times. While nobody enjoys MRIs, this experience was as pleasant as possible.

      The people were nice, but I went there for a open MRI, it was not open it was still a tube you went inside of and I couldn't do it. I thought the sides would be open.

      I guess you have to be over the age of 80 to be treated equally and with respect from the front desk. I was greeted with a rude attitude from start to finish at the front desk. Tip for staff: dont judge a book by its cover...

      I had a shoulder MRI done here by Beth and highly recommend this facility to anyone needing an MRI. All the staff I dealt with there were on the ball, super friendly, and very efficient. The cost was much less than I thought as well. (They also had HGTV on in their waiting room which was an added bonus. Lol) Again, highly recommended and 2 thumbs up!

      What a fantastic facility! The moment I walked in to have a scan which my physician requested, I knew I was in a patient centered facility. The staff was so friendly and helpful. I felt immediately at easy. The equipment was modern and amazing. The technician was knowledgeable and courteous. This is one of the best medical experiences I have ever had in my life and I am a senior. I have been to other facilities for imaging and the Open MRI of Asheville is superior
